What you can do about strawberry hemangioma in baby

Make sure your doctor is aware of the hemangioma so they can keep an eye on it. Most hemangiomas will shrink over time and not require any treatment. Sometimes they grow larger and some may bleed. Some hemangiomas need to be surgically removed, but that is not common.

If you baby has a hemangioma make sure to follow the advice of your doctor and have is checked out if it get bigger. You should do not do anything to the hemangioma without your doctors approval.

My good friend's older daughter had this. It took almost 4 years to go away. It was a big one, though.

    My daughter had/has a small one on her foot when she was born ... it shrank and is barely noticeable now!
